MOSCOW, May 28. /TASS/. Russia’s defense ministry has dismissed reported about alleged interception of Israeli F-16 warplanes by Russian Su-34 fighter bombers over Lebanon as untrue.

"Reports circulated by an Israeli news website about alleged ‘interception’ of two Israeli F-16 planes by Russian Su-34’s in the airspace over Lebanon are dilettantish nonsense," the ministry said on Monday.

"The Su-34 multirole bombers of the Russian taskforce in Syria are not used to intercept aerial targets and perform no missions in Lebanon’s airspace," the ministry stressed.
